    A friend of mine here in Kansas City bought this photo from a vendor at the city market. The caption appears to be Scandinavian or German.

    Another find by John Lawson. Here's a vintage photo from turn-of-the century Kansas City. This is the Mascot Mandolin Club from 1902.

    Bill Graham and I got to take a look at this large-body Harwood at Winfield back in September. This guitar is the size of a Martin 000 and has mahogany back and sides. Like the guitar pictured in...

    Re: R. Crumb's Music

    I have all the R. Crumb And The Cheap Suit Serenaders LPs including the 78 rpm party record. I taught myself to play mandolin by learning the old-time tunes on Kenny Hall's LP, and the Hawaiian...

    Free modifications on Blue Chip picks

    When I was at the Walnut Valley Festival (Winfield) last month, I stopped by the Blue Chip booth and asked about rounding one corner of my TAD-50. They told me to send it to them, and they would do...

    Re: Mandolin Brothers, NYC, July 16

    It doesn't hurt to ask. Of course instruments on the level of a Loar are not hanging on the wall. When I was there a couple years ago I asked Stan if I could play the Loar that was listed on their...

    Nice arrangement and nicely played, but the song is not in the key of G. In this lesson video, it is actually in D. Just try improvising in the key of G and you'll see it doesn't work. The...

    Re: Harwood mandolins and guitars

    I took a closer look at the Harwood in post #234. It is not a No. 60 as it has 24 ribs, not 21 as described in the catalog. Also, the ribs all appear to be rosewood, not mahogany and rosewood. ...

    Re: Harwood mandolins and guitars

    This appears to be a No. 60. I don't know where the seller got the 1889 date.

    Re: Harwood mandolins and guitars

    Mick - the un-ribbed Harwood that I inspected had a fabric liner inside the bowl. I'm guessing that it was used to reinforce the bowl.

    I saw this last night, Mick. A low end model as the bowl is not ribbed. The interesting thing about this one is the engraved and dated tailpiece cover. It's the first time we've ever been able to...
